Hello Rose, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
From the complaint you mentioned, it's still not specific enough to lead to a diagnosis of disease. Chest pain and cough that you feel, there are several possible diseases that occur, namely:
To be sure, you should do a consultation with the nearest doctor so that interviews are done about your complaints in more detail and a physical examination is done directly on your body. Due to the current rampant 19 infection, it certainly makes everyone panic. Symptoms of covid 19 infections such as coughing, high fever above 38 degrees Celsius, and shortness of breath. Of course what directs covid 19 infection is a history of contact with patients who are positively infected or a history of traveling to the affected area. What is feared if complaints of cough for more than 3 weeks, is a tuberculosis infection. This disease must be treated for a minimum of 6 months, and may not drop out of the drug. Therefore, you should do an inspection as early as possible to get the right treatment.
Right now what you can do should be:
Maintain a nutritious diet, especially eating vegetables and fruit.
Consumption of enough water.
Avoid smoking and alcoholic drinks.
Avoid traveling to crowded places if it is not an emergency.
Use a mask during illness / apply the correct ethical cough.
Maintain cleanliness of the body, especially washing hands with soap.
Avoid contact with sick people, do self-quarantine / social distancing.
That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
